Terry L. Tiller Fri Mar 28 10:45:52 1997

TILLER --- I'm looking for information on William Tiller Sr. of Richmond Co. and William Tiller Jr. of Essex Co. Both died in 1718. The earliest record I have of William Tiller Sr. is dated Oct.1, 1699. I'm trying to determine if he is the same William Tiller who was included in the headright of Rees Hughes in New Kent Co. 1657. I am also interested in any information about William Tiller Sr.'s son John. I believe he migrated to Westmoreland Co. in the early 1700's, and his descendants later migrated to the Caroline Co area.
